Katharine Swartz is a name readers who enjoy emotional and intensely well-written sagas ought to remember. Her first novel, Far Horizons, is a terrific tale which you just want to curl up with and devour in a single sitting!

Allan MacDougal may be leaving for the New World to establish himself, but he does not want to leave his beloved Harriet. So he asks her to wait for him until he can return for her when he is established so that they can marry and live a comfortable life. But Harriet’s parents decide to thwart his plans, but he decides to remain honourable and not to betray his beloved.

But on Prince Edward Island, Allan is finding it hard to assert himself against the tyranny of his father and Harriet finds herself threatened and in danger of losing her family’s farm.

Does Allan and Harriet’s love stand a chance of survival?

I really enjoyed reading Far Horizons! Katharine Swartz has written a wonderful tale which will tug at your heartstrings and have you eagerly anticipating Ms. Swartz’s next novel!
